MAXIMUM PARTICIPANTS: 12
The ultimate in soldering education since 1981 has been Science of Soldering© developed by Jim Smith of Electronics Manufacturing Sciences. The unique approach is not like any other soldering class. It begins with a hands-on soldering problem. The problem appears simple but everything goes wrong. Solder fails to flow, materials melt and other issues make the connection unacceptable. A soldering “recipe” is taught used in troubleshooting the soldering problem. The “recipe” achieves perfect connections every time – and it’s easy! The “recipe” and special techniques for dealing with issues like ground planes and fine lead pitches are then applied to soldering through-hole and surface mount components. The class concludes with techniques for easy removal of components for repair without needing special tools.
The results are remarkable. In just two days, Science of Soldering© provides all the knowledge that makes perfect soldering easy, the first time, every time.
Two years ago, we arranged a Science of Soldering© class for customers at our Sunnyvale location. The class was so well received that we held another with the same results. We scheduled more for last year but the Covid-19 pandemic made that impossible. As it turned out, the pandemic provided an unexpected benefit: Electronics Manufacturing Sciences reconfigured Science of Soldering© for presentation as a web meeting. On March 30th and 31st, you can attend the full Science of Soldering© without leaving your office. Jim Smith, the creator of Science of Soldering,© will lead the fully interactive class which includes every aspect of the in-person class. All the presentations, discussions and hands-on exercises of the in-person class will be the same. Registration will be limited to a maximum of 10 participants.
“The most important soldering defects can’t be seen. It is internal damage to components. Focusing solely on the solder joints without knowing how they were achieved is a critical failing of the traditional approach to evaluating soldering performance. Components are very sensitive to overheating and irons are responsible for that overheating. I will be teaching how to use irons without getting component temperature much above the melting temperatures of solder.”
